Doomed Flourescents - A Horribe Sight to See (1)

Doomed Flourescents - A Horribe Sight to See (1)

This dangling 4 footer flouro and the fan next to it likely smashed up during demolition of the former Maytag Plant 1 factory complex buildings in Newton, Iowa, Not sure how I can go about saving anything electrical from this building and and was all fenced off with no trespassing signs and video surveilance around the area. If I had my way there would been some great pickings! Picture taken in the parking lot in July 2008. Maytag company was purchased by Whirlpool in 2006 and 3200 jobs were lost and the plant 2 facility closed. Iowa Telecom owned the Maytag offices for 4 years and then Iowa Telecom was sold to Windstream and hundred more jobs lost and then windstream sold the former Maytag office areas for $!, yes one dollar to a development firm. I think these fixtures might took the tubes with the single pins.

Why they don't removes all of the property, before demoliting the building?

A good question here but a lot of tools and machinery was removed and possibly hauled off to Benton Harbor Michigan and other equipment may went to a metal scrapyard.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!
